Christ­mas trees for sol­diers and sailors

The Morning Call (Sunday) - - STATE/REGION -

Christ­mas can be a lonely time, es­pe­cially for the na­tion's mil­i­tary per­son­nel and their fam­i­lies. So give them a lit­tle hol­i­day cheer by buy­ing them a Christ­mas tree.

To­day is the last day for Pennsylvania res­i­dents to par­tic­i­pate in the 2018 Trees for Troops drive, ac­cord­ing to the state de­part­ments of Agri­cul­ture and Mil­i­tary and Vet­er­ans Af­fairs.

“This out­stand­ing pro­gram will send trees overseas to spread joy to ser­vice mem­bers de­ployed far away from their fam­i­lies, and also de­liver trees state­side to brighten the hearts of our troops and their fam­i­lies who were for­tu­nate to be home for the hol­i­days,” said Maj. Gen. Tony Carelli, the state ad­ju­tant gen­eral, who heads the Depart­ment of Mil­i­tary and Vet­er­ans Af­fairs.

The pro­gram is part of the Christ­mas Spir­itFoun­da­tion, a non­profit branch of the Na­tional Christ­mas Tree As­so­ci­a­tion, which rep­re­sents more than 700 farms in 29 states. For in­for­ma­tion on par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­ca­tions, go to www.christ­masspir­it­foun­da­tion.org.

In other hol­i­day news, Gov. Tom Wolf and first lady Frances Wolf will light the Capi­tol's Christ­mas Tree at a noon cer­e­mony Thurs­day.

It is an 18-foot Dou­glas fir from Crys­tal Spring Tree Farm in Le­high­ton.

call­ing for an end to U.S. mil­i­tary to end its in­volve­ment in the Saudi-led war in Ye­men.

The vote oc­curred over the ob­jec­tions of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo and Sec­re­tary of De­fense James Mat­tis. Trump has stuck up for Saudi Ara­bia and its crown prince, Mo­hammed bin Sal­man, who U.S. in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cials say must have at least known about his gov­ern­ment's plot to kill Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, who lived in the United States, was mur­dered last month in the Saudi em­bassy in Is­tan­bul.

Toomey's full state­ment af­ter Wed­nes­day's vote:

“As a great na­tion, we are chal­lenged to main­tain both our se­cu­rity and our val­ues. Some­times, our na­tional se­cu­rity in­ter­ests re­quire us to work with regimes, like that of Saudi Ara­bia, that do not share our val­ues and our views on hu­man rights. This does not mean we can ig­nore atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted by the gov­ern­ments of our al­lies. To­day's pro­ce­dural vote will right­fully prompt fur­ther con­ver­sa­tion on the mur­der of Ja­mal Khashoggi and our re­la­tion­ship with Saudi Ara­bia. How­ever, it also af­fords the Se­nate an op­por­tu­nity to have a broader de­bate con­cern­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate bal­ance be­tween our val­ues and main­tain­ing our na­tional se­cu­rity based re­la­tion­ships.”

head­ing the Demo­cratic Pol­icy and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mit­tee.

That panel is tasked with de­vel­op­ing mes­sages that com­mu­ni­cate the House Democrats' po­si­tions and agenda.

“I in­tend to use this lead­er­ship po­si­tion to help my party and the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives do more for the 8th Con­gres­sional District of Pennsylvania,” Cartwright said in a state­ment.

The post could be a step­ping stone to other lead­er­ship roles within the cau­cus. The cur­rent DPCC lead­ers sought more prom­i­nent posts, with one elected as the cau­cus chair­man and another tapped to head the House Demo­cratic cam­paign arm.
